Okay, a huge shout-out to moms who work jobs outside the home. I don't know how you do it in addition to all the other responsibilities required of moms!
I was offered a job selling Bernina sewing machines - and I said, "Sure!"
Last week was my first week... now granted I'm not working full-time, because I want to write full-time. However, to get trained, I need to work more hours. So, Thursday of last week was my first day. I had either the flu or serious food poisoning on Wednesday and was down for the count. Great. Couldn't call in sick to my first day of work... so I sucked it up and went in to work eight hours Thursday. Did great. Came home and crashed. Worked eight hours Friday. Came home and prepped a Stampin' Up! class, and then taught a SU! class Saturday. Came home and crashed.
Writing? Who has time to be a writer? Oh my gosh.
So, I thought I'd get up early, get chores done, and get 2000 words written before heading out to work today. Well... I need to leave in twenty minutes. Do you think I can get 2000 words written in twenty minutes?
This job thing is interferring with my writing thing.
The job thing interfered with my writing thing, too. I just made it a habit to get up 3 hours before I had to go to work (luckily the earliest I had to go to work is 9am and I'm an early riser anyway!) and made sure I wrote. I brought my word count down a bit so I didn't shoot so high and feel bad if I didn't do it. I'm also editing a novel too, so it's been busy!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean. I don't have any kids, but I do have a full time job. My full time job is in insurance with some of the most infuriating customers, so sometimes I am completely mentally drained by the time I come home.ReplyDelete
I would LOVE to write full time. Here's to hoping we both get our wish.
